Dear Colleagues,

We really hope you and your relatives are all well and healthy during this unprecedented period.

The Organizing Committee of the 7th Balkan Symposium on Archaeometry, after evaluating the everyday progress of the Covid-19 pandemic and after extended discussions with the Senate of the University of West Attica (host Institution), the Greek Ministry of Culture and all the relevant Greek authorities, is happy to announce that the 7th BSA will take place on September 22-25, 2020 .

We want to reassure you that we are taking all the appropriate measures in line both with the governmental and the World Health Organization guidelines and we all feel that this conference will be safe and successful.

  • The conference will be held at the main auditorium of the University of West Attica (Campus II) taking into consideration all regulations set by Greek National Public Health Organization (appropriate social distancing, availability of masks and disinfectant liquids, proper ventilation ).
  • Each participant will be informed for the specific guidelines prior to their arrival by email from the Symposium Secretary. The participants attending the conference on site will have to sign the respective legal documents (form of consent) following the GDPR guidelines.
